No Labels Awards "Problem Solver Seal of Approval" to Rep. Lipinski

No Labels, a national organization dedicated to a new politics of problem solving, has awarded its “Problem Solver Seal of Approval” to Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) for his support of the group’s year-long effort to create a National Strategic Agenda, a roadmap for the country based on goals shared by both parties.

No Labels is calling for America's leaders to support a new governing process to build a National Strategic Agenda centered on four goals.  These goals – chosen with input from a nationwide survey that No Labels conducted last fall – are:

·         Create 25 million new jobs over the next 10 years;

·         Balance the federal budget by 2030;

·         Secure Medicare and Social Security for another 75 years; and

·         Make America energy secure by 2024.

“Disagreements over specific policies or politics aren't the only causes of perpetual gridlock in D.C.,” said No Labels co-founder Mark McKinnon.  “Our leaders haven’t defined a shared vision about what our country’s goals are.  The National Strategic Agenda will enable our leaders to decide together where we as a nation should be going and how we will get there.  We commend Rep. Lipinski for his support of this new governing process and his willingness to challenge the status quo on Capitol Hill.”

The National Strategic Agenda, with specific policy proposals to address each of the four goals, will be developed over the course of the next year through working groups and meetings all over the country with elected officials and policy experts, business and community leaders, and citizens.  No Labels will be developing the agenda in partnership with Deloitte Consulting LLP, a worldwide leader in strategy consulting.  Rep. Lipinski will be among those participating in the process.  The comprehensive agenda will be unveiled in New Hampshire in October 2015.  More than 80 members of Congress have already endorsed the campaign for a National Strategic Agenda.
